"This holiday let is perfect for a family or adults."
We were 3 adults, and so had a room each. The kitchen and lounge are well equipped with stunning balcony views across the fields and sea, the sunsets being a special bonus! We chose this cottage for it's wonderful cliff edged beach, with sand, rock pools and safe swimming. The clifftop walks, birdlife and flora are of great interest to us too. The nearby heritage cottage museum and gardens, and cafe by the beach make this a great attraction for all. If the local authorities could make the beach dog free during peak holiday time, we would welcome this!
"Mark .we've just come back from this property it was great beautiful views of the sea and countryside very clean and modern the only thing to spoil it was the privacy the staff at the lobster pot restaurant park about 6 motor bikes by the cottage and stand chatting by them which is right by the cottages open garden and they also park in your parking space odd days other than this the place is beautiful"
"This is a lovely 'upside down' cottage with beautiful balcony overlooking farmland and the sea."
It is exceptionally clean and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Perfectly situated for the coastal path and the north of the island. We will definitely be back!
"Lovely place to stay, beautiful views from the living area."
The place is comfortably furnished and clean. During our stay the restaurant adjacent to the property was quiet, in the summer it could be busier and there might be a lack of privacy felt by guests.
"We have been visiting Anglesey yearly for the past 10 years and have to say this was the best by far."
The views were exceptional and the comfort of the cottage was like home from home. We had the best time thank you.
"Great location so close to the beach and fabulous, elevated views across the fields and the bay."
Modern, high quality fixtures, fittings and furnishings throughout and everything spotlessly clean. A wonderful place for a peaceful break and to access the Welsh Coastal Pathway.
"A good quality property with everything that we'd expect."
Just missing a teapot, which the owners provided immediately on request. Thanks.
"This was our third stay at this lovely little cottage and it was just as enjoyable as the first time."
We love the panoramic view from the huge windows and the balcony, where we enjoyed watching the sunset with a glass of wine. The cottage is immaculately clean, well equipped and comfortable and is in a good location close to the beach at Church Bay and walks along the coastal path. The Lobster Pot restaurant is next door and the Wavecrest cafe very close by. The owners of Glan Yr Afon are friendly and helpful and are easily contacted if required. We would thoroughly recommend both the cottage and area for a stay, although we are reluctant to share this as we'd like to keep it to ourselves!
"We have had a fabulous week in this great cottage with wonderful views."
We had everything we needed and for us it was a perfect location. Our host was very friendly and helpful when we made a request, nothing seemed too much trouble. A chilled bottle of wine on arrival was most welcome too. We made the most of the lovely weather and walked miles of the coastal paths (absolutely stunning!) and cycled the (mostly) quiet roads. A visit to The Lobster Pot was a perfect ending to our holiday. Book early, as it’s definitely worth a visit! We can highly recommend Glan Yr Afon! Thank you. Gail and David
"Glan yr Afon the house was very clean and well kept and has everything you need for a self catering holiday the views and sunsets from the balcony are amazing."
You need to be very organised when it comes to essentials as the nearest shop is about 2 miles away, the cafe the wavecrest is really nice but only opens Thursday to Sunday. We walked the coastal path in both directions and the views are amazing. Didn’t eat at the lobster pot as we are not seafood lovers but very convenient restaurant. So the nearest place was the valley about 10 minutes by car has lots of take aways and restaurants. Definitely recommend this place Thanks
"The property was everything we hoped it would be and more!"
We could not have had a more perfect holiday. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We were very lucky that the weather was fantastic so we really did see the property at its best. I think, if the weather had been poor, there are probably better places to stay on Anglesey as this was a bit of a drive away from the majority of 'tourist attractions' but, if you just want somewhere comfortable, quiet and restful with good facilities, it would be hard to beat! The only small niggle was that there were a couple of lovely dogs allowed to roam freely between the properties and, consequently, we sometimes found they had fouled the path to the cottage and the cottage picnic area. Quite how you deal with that without having to chain the dogs (which wouldn't seem fair), I don't know. The owners were around and very pleasant without remotely impinging on your privacy. Couldn't recommend highly enough and wish I was still there!
"Loved the cottage and the balcony view."
Really well equipped. Perfectly situated for the beach.
"A pleasant property in a lovely pat of the world."
The two issues we had were dealt with promptly and with smiling faces. A little constructive criticism : A few pictures, perhaps from local artists would make the place feel less clinical. Leaflets detailing local attractions would be helpful. We felt patio doors leading in the main bedroom and leading out onto what is essentially a pub garden was a little odd. Brick up and replace with a window or create a defined border between the two properties. warn people that restaurants and bars are not open 7 days a week.
"Loved my stay here!"
Comfortable, clean, well-equipped and stylish accommodation in a great location. Beautiful stretches of the coastal path 2 minutes away.
"Highest standard of cleanliness and attention to detail in the property."
"We have just had an amazing holiday!"
The location is perfect and the accommodation is superb. We will be booking again next year
"Lovely accommodation in a great setting and a perfect base for holidaying in mixed British weather!"
Very clean and comfortable. We loved the 'glass wall' westerly views across the headland to the sea, and the easy access to the beach and the coastal path.
"Great location just a few minutes walk to the beach - and the Anglesey Coastal Path."
Panoramic glass wall the length of the living/kitchen area provides views over the sea to Holyhead. Property itself is high spec and well appointed.
"This is our second stay at Glan yr Afon and we have booked for next year."
The location is superb. 100 metres to the beach and coastal path, a restaurant next door and a cafe two minutes away. The cottage is very comfortable and the view from the balcony is amazing! Glan yr Afon is an ideal base for discovering beautiful Anglesey.
"Just the most idyllic setting and you could not want for more welcoming people."
The cottage is laid out beautifully with stunning views. Everything you could wish for and more. We’ve visited lots of small bays completely off the beaten track and bathed in glorious sunshine - lucky week! Comfortable beds, clean cottage and with the bay at the end of the road what more could you wish for. We will be back!
"We booked Glan Yr Afon mainly because of the location which was 100metres from Church Bay where I spent many Summer holidays with my family."
The accommodation was excellent in every respect. It was warm and spotlessly clean. The view of the sea and hills from the balcony were amazing. We were a two minute walk from the coastal path and we did different walks on four days. Unfortunately we left a couple of days early as the Welsh National lockdown was due to start. We are going to book Glan Yr Afon again for early next year and can't wait to visit lovely Anglesey again. Communication with Nia the owner was also very good. She was very helpful
"Super accommodation in a beautiful location."
Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Very happy!
"Fabulous cottage with great views and very comfortable."
Thanks so much for Welsh cakes and wine...a lovely thought. Great to have a change of scene in a great location .
